Australia's injury woes continued ahead of Saturday's third Bledisloe Cup clash against NZ with prop Ben Alexander ruled out with a wrist injury.
Alexander is the second player to drop out of the Wallabies squad since it was announced earlier this week. Reserve hooker Saia Fainga'a withdrew after breaking his hand at training.
James Slipper was reinstated to the starting front row as Alexander's replacement on Thursday, with Sekope Kepu covering Slipper on the bench after recovering from a knee injury.
James Hanson is the new reserve hooker.
Should Hanson take the field in Brisbane, he will become the 12th player to make his international debut for Australia this year.
